Features

  • Stainless steel emitter assembly, fully insulated and enclosed - will not crumble or distort. Features 3-year limited warranty.
  • Stainless steel, corrosion resistant burner assembly features simple disassembly for easy cleaning and maintenance.
  • Stainless steel main burner gas line for strength and durability.
  • Large deep dish aluminum canopy to efficiently reflect heat to litter area where it's needed most.
  • Ignition Control features a moisture resistant enclosure.
  • Safety pan below burner helps shield litter area directly beneath brooder.
  • Pilot models have easily removable shields for quick access to the pilot orifice.
  • Pilot model allows for quick, trouble free access to the main burner orifice by simply sliding back a quick release bracket. This helps reduce maintenance time and assures longer life and lower operating costs.
  • DSI models feature new dual fuel regulator which enables the gas valve on the brooder to operate using either natural gas or propane gas. This new feature eliminates the need for users to undergo the costly retrofit expense of changing the gas valve when switching from propane to natural gas or vice-versa. Simply unscrew and and install the appropriate gas conversion kit to make the switch between gas types (propane or natural gas).
  • Pilot or Direct Spark Ignition (DSI) models available.
  • Low profile mounting bracket permits easy leveling of brooder.

RADIANT HEAT VS FORCED AIR

Radiant vrs Forced Air
 

Unique 60° Emitter Angle Puts More Radiant Heat Into Primary Brood Area
No other radiant gas brooder can provide more radiant heat to the floor of your poultry house than Space-Ray. Our specially designed 60° emitter angle, combined with our deep dish canopy, produces an optimum heat pattern in the primary brood area. This large radiant heat pattern means that fewer brooders are required in each house resulting in fuel savings.

Space-Ray's Unique 60° Emitter Angle is specifically designed to aim the radiant heat directly at the birds where it's needed most

Efficient Radiant Heater Emitter Radiant vrs Forced Air

Fully Insulated, Enclosed Emitter Assembly for Durability & Efficiency
Space-Ray's stainless steel emitter assembly is fully insulated and enclosed so the insulation will not crumble or distort in the tough operating conditions normally found in poultry houses. This exclusive design not only provides durability but also prevents heat loss back through the emitter than can occur over time. This results in higher radiant output and continued energy efficiency that translates into annual fuel savings.

  • Low profile mounting bracket permits easy leveling of brooder
  • Large deep dish canopy to efficiently reflect heat to litter area where it is needed most
  • The stainless emitter assembly is fully insulated and enclosed. It features a full 3-year limited warranty
  • The burner assembly with durable cast iron cap features large burner ports for more even heat distribution and years of trouble free service
  • The safety pan helps to shield litter area directly beneath the brooder
  • Has a stainless steel main burner gas line for strength and durability
  • The pilot models have easily removable shields for quick access to the pilot orifice
  • The direct spark ignition model's 3-try direct spark ignition is in a moisture resistant enclosure for added reliability

SRB40CR PILOT IGNITION CONTROL OPTIONS
CONTROL NO. 2
For single or multi-zone installations using central or multiple thermostats. This 24 volt AC zone type control can also operate using a 12 volt DC inverter as a backup. The gas valve includes a built-in regulator. A 24 volt power supply is required. Zone control panel (Part no. 4361905) and/or 24 volt thermostat, computer or environmental controller is required. 100% gas safety shut-off valve.

Control No. 3
BA modulating type HI/LO control with integral thermostat. No electrical supply is needed. Upon call for heat, valve will open from pilot to low fire (32,000 BTU/Hr.) and modulate between low and high fire as necessary to maintain desired temperature setting. When thermostat has been satisfied, valve will modulate down to low fire and then drop to pilot. 100% gas safety shut-off valve. Available only for use with propane gas.

Control No. 9
An individual, non-electric, fully automatic On/Off control with integral thermostat which operates on millivolts generated by the pilot – no electrical supply needed. Integral thermostat features a wide temperature range for easy adjustment. 100% gas safety shut-off valve.
